- Guided Hillwalking Across the Scottish Highlands

West Highland Way

by JohnKing

At the beginning of April I was working for Thistle Trekking on the West Highland Way (WHW), Scotland’s first long distance walking route, which stretches for 96 miles from the outskirts of Glasgow – Scotland’s largest city – to Fort William, at the foot of Ben Nevis – at 1345m, Scotland’s highest mountain. I was guiding Thistle’s first WHW group of the 2018, a team of apprentice engineers up in Scotland to walk the Way as part of a team building exercise. We were lucky with the weather throughout, getting pretty much ideal conditions for the walk and there were plenty of smiles and lots of satisfaction at the finish line on Fort William High Street. You can read my full write-up of the week on Thistle Trekking’s Blog here (part I) and here (part II)!
